What I like about Bielsa is that he chooses to live in a tiny flat that, being in Yorkshireland, probably costs about £12 a week to rent.

Reminds me of Eric The King when he was at the real United, chose to live in an ordinary house in an ordinary street rather than bigging it up in a mock Tudor mansion in Wilmslow.

Yes he lived at Chapeltown, don’t know where he lived when he went to Manchester though

Never in doubt, Bielsa is an enigma in football terms, he is not so much motivated by the money, he is happy to see his training practices & tactics come to fruition, everything points to his tactics working in the premier league but we will see, I would be happy with a couple of seasons mid table finish & progress from there, I still believe we need more investment to compete although we have some really good youngsters coming through
Must admit, I'm looking forward to watching Leeds this season. I really hope they stay up (yes, I'm a Cardiff City fan but there's no sarcasm or anything untoward. I genuinely hope Leeds stay up and if they do well and hit mid-table, even better).

I'd like to see Brighton go down. They've been flirting with relegation for the past few years yet never seem to do much to try and achieve something better.

I would like to see Brighton go down purely on how they have treated their Members over the last few years. I used to go quite a lot but stopped when they started charging an annual fee just to be able to apply to buy tickets. Totally unnecessary, they did it because they could and I hope that many others voted with their feet the same way that I did.

On a purely footballing basis, they were dropping like a stone in the second half of last season and I can't see they have strengthened.

Terrific stadium though. Looks amazing when you approach it from the coast road rather than the A27.

You're thinking of the people's club, the mighty Toffees (y)
I’ve been to Goodison a few times when I was seconded up to the Liverpool office of my previous company. I much prefer it to Anfield. I preferred being in hospital having a camera shoved up my arse to Anfield but that’s another story. The Hawthorns is probably the worst football ground I’ve ever been to.

Wimbledon's Plough Lane is the worst league ground I have ever been to. It's now a housing estate that is a better stab at a football ground than the football ground ever was.

I visited Arbroath FC up in Scotshire many years ago, my pal was once a player for them, it’s a very dour brick enclosure with barbed wire all around the tops of the walls - presumably to keep the fans in.

Ooooh, Leeds are rumoured to have (or about to) offer Manchester United £25 million for Daniel James. Looks like they need more money to buy Jadon Sancho.

James has great potential but he needs to go out on loan to get experience and a bit more street wisdom. Blisteringly quick but quite predictable.

I'm really not sure why we are chasing Sancho (if indeed we are?) - obviously a really good player but seems like more of what we have already got. Would prefer to see the money invested elsewhere in the team.

United need a right-sided forward and Sancho fits the bill. I think he's too expensive for what he could bring to the party.

James was only signed because Ryan Giggs recommended him. I was never convinced that he was a United player, but what do I know?

What do you know? Don't knock yourself, recent hints of you replacing the oil burner with a proper petrol engined version shows that it's never too late to learn:p

Whether an extra £8k - £10k for the 340i compared to the 330i is a decision only you can make based on the size of your todger and the depth of your pocket though.

Bmw owners don’t have todgers
